Congrats!

Awesome car. I've had my 06 ZHP one year now, still groovy.

I didn't know that the spoiler you had was available. Mine is much smaller and has no gap in between it and the trunk.

For the 2006 performance package, the manual and driver's side sticker recommend 32 front / 38 rear. Also, it uses 18" wheels. Different tires = different psi I guess.

I thought all E46s came Germany with South Carolina producing Z4's and X3's or something like that. I know my E46 came from Germany, I took my ED delivery in Munich :)
